Medicare and the Future of Homes for the Aged
The author evaluates the impact the new Medicare program will have on the field of homes for the aged. Medicare will be a limited source of financial support for nursing homes, the author reports. He predicts future trends in response to Medicare, such as hospitals expanding into the field of extended care, and homes for the aged (as well as other health care facilities) playing greater roles in central planning. A more orderly and formalized system of non-hospital care will also result, the author predicts.
